    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Barnard College

    Pros

    There are many great people that work here. good vacation days. lots of sick days.

    Cons

    Antiquated systems. No real raises for union employees. High turnover = always starting from square one with new people.

    Advice to Management

    poll the middle staff workers on what needs to improve. the administrators are the ones that know how everything works.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Barnard College part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Diverse environment -Can be creative within limits

    Cons

    -Lack of transparency from administration -Lack of respect for student opinions and concerns; wants to control students rather than let them flourish -Not aware that change needs to happen gradually and collaboratively; not a singular decision at the top -Work/life balance is almost non-existent

    Advice to Management

    Have honest feedback tables with no repercussions for those involved. Shouldn't be necessary that employees feel afraid to give feedback.
